Turns out it is a particular quirk with the specific version of texlive that is
included in SL6.   A fedora guy is working on packaging a more recent version of
texlive (2011 instead of 2007) and I was able to install his texlive packages
and get past the R CMD CHECK problem I was having.

Now to grind through all the R packages my users want that aren't in the r-repo
spec files yet.
